Get off the cross we need the wood

About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.

My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥


~~ A complicated heart ~~

Posted by Ania On Friday, January 18, 2013


The heart is a complicated thing. Like, literally.


A colleague of mine recently had to undergo surgery because of her complicated heart. I immediately thought of the Maya Road canvas hearts and how it would be the perfect focal point for a dressed up chocolate gift for her (selfish, I know).


I put a lot of Maya Road goodies to good use the measure ribbon, which I have grown to love (took me a while, though!) – it curls so perfect…


Add pleated satin ribbon….vivid mists on gessoed canvas….a tucked in vintage key…trinkets and other bits..


And ofcourse…the ornate vintage butterfly stamp – love it!


Right…atm busy renovating the kitchen…or rather..throwing away the old kitchen & getting in a brand new kitchen…am taking a few days off work to get stuff done….with no time for creative endeavours so far, cry….despite me having a lot of brand new papers I’m itching to use..….sigh…

Ahwell..will get right back to scrapping once the kitchen’s ready!
